mornings to talk about the wind energy industry and the importance of the trucks tax credit. but before -- and the importance of the production tax credit. before i begin i'd like to associate myself with the majority leader's remarks. we do need to extend the tax cuts for the middle class as soon as possible. that's clearly the message the american people sent on november 6 in the nationwide election that we had. i also want to respond to the comments and the conversation between the two leaders over the debt ceiling limit. it's important to recognize that when we raise the debt ceiling all we are doing is keeping faith with what congress has already appropriated, what congress has already made clear we will spend on behalf of our country and all the various ways that the federal government operates. we cannot afford to have a situation like we had august before last where we dallied and we literally shot our economy and ourselves in the foot by not extending the debt ceiling. we saw one of the rating agencies lower our national rating; first time in history. there is a way to do this
state. they want green rj energy which makes them double up on fossil fuels. they want a carbon tax and with a 52% rate i heard their businesses are fleeing to arizona. former mississippi governor haley barbour has been appointed to do an autopsy on gop losses last month. we are going to look at the forensic evidence on this one. first up, take a listen to this one. one of the many radio ads by the kept of agriculture encouraging people to sign up for food stamps. >> would you look at margie? she looks amazing. >> she sure does. >> i wonder how she stays so fit? what's her secret? >> well, she told me that food stamp benefits help her eat right and she stays active, too. >> guess what. unfortunately this is working. despite an improving economy and declines in unemployment we learned the number of people on food stamps is still soaring. this is government dependency at its worst. here now is the story. political reporter from the daily caller and margie omara. margie, i have to go to you first. in some sense this is a bipartisan story. if you look at the evidence that's come out tod
that climate change is the biggest single challenge that we face and we can't move fast enough to do energy efficientcy better. the other point about that from the governor's perspective is it is a jobs creator. as we move to energy efficientcy which is good for climate change but america cannot afford to continue to import oil that is going be $5 or whatever it is going to be in the future put all that money out there countries that donets like us instead of keeping our energy resources here at home. what we're doing in many of our states is growing renewables, producing renewables which creates manufacturing jobs. take our energy efficientcy obligations more seriously. there is no better way to save money than using less energy. the result is we're growing jobs from it. i can tell you here in vermont we have more green, clean high-tech jobs per capita than any other state in the country. we're moving so quickly on those areas that we now have the fastest growth rate in the northeast. we're the only state in the nation to have income growth in 2011. climate change is not only important for
change is the single biggest challenge we face and we cannot move fast enough to do energy efficiency better. from the governor's perspective, it is a job creator. as we move to renewable and energy efficiency, which we have to do for climate change and because america cannot afford to continue to import oil that is $4, five bucks, which ever is going to do what we're doing in many of our states is growing wables. les -- grenoble' the result is that we are growing jobs from its. in vermont, we have more high- tech jobs per capita than any other state in the country. we are moving so quickly in those areas we now have the fastest growth rate in the north east. we were the only state in the nation to see income growth in 2011. we cannot move fast enough to do energy efficiency better. it is also a huge jobs creator. if we get it right we will find that climate change is an economic opportunity that the industrial revolution or the technology boom were. >> you rattled off a number of states. what is it like being a new chairman? have you gone through a boot camp and now you know everythi

" the court has notified us. all energy development comes with some risk, but proven technologies allow natural gas producers to supply affordable, cleaner energy, while protecting our environment. across america, these technologies protect air - by monitoring air quality and reducing emissions... ...protect water - through conservation and self-contained recycling systems... ... and protect land - by reducing our footprint and respecting wildlife. america's natural gas... domestic, abundant, clean energy to power our lives... that's smarter power today. >>shepard: there is breaking news on fox news channel, the supreme court has notify the us it will take us gay marriage cases including california's ban on same-sex marriage unions. we got the word and our correspondent is with us on the phone now. shannon, what is the story? >>shannon: they decided to take up to different gay marriage cases. you mention the one from california, you may remember proposition eight. the voters passed a measure that allows only the recognition of one man, one woman as a "marriage." a federal court overturn
not and it's time for to us devote energy to fixing and improving the law where the law -- where there are flaws. if we really want to help community banks, this is where we should focus our energy and i know there's a lot of bipartisan ideas around how we can do that. i think all of us have heard from community bankers and our states about the onslaught of regulation they have, some of which was really meant to deal with some of the bigger institutions but, again, that to me is where we can really focus in a bipartisan way to give some relief to our community banks. giving out limbless deposit insurance, though, i suppose by some, some people have decided that's a consolation prize. and i hate that. that's too bad. we should fix dodd-frank if we want to help our community banks. but to to the vote in front of us is a t.a.g. extension. i want to talk a little bit about that specifically. there are a series of policy reasons why it's time to end the t.a.g. program. i will go through a couple of them here. first, the fdic insurance fund is undercapitalized. this is a fund of reserv
. with respect to health care costs and energy costs. and then i think it will create the conditions under which businesses will be able to create a renaissance of american competitors. i think that is a brilliant agenda. i think we have agreed that as the distinguished alumnus of harvard said washington as a town with northern charm and southern efficiency. let's assume we go through the fiscal cliff. immigration, corporate tax reform, and investments. emigration, you're not doing the dramatic. vietor due to comprehensive immigration but we did not have a chance to do it. both wings cayman decided it would sabotage it. maybe republicans learned the lesson but i am not sure how much of a lesson. the way that was financed was through the corporate tax increase but there -- that had people on both sides will in to work with the white house and congress. when you talk about infrastructure spending and investments in things we have done with nih, all the talk now is about death. >-- how do you do what the ambitious and admirable the agenda envisions? >> will have the discussion of the debt ceiling a
unions controlled education policy. the plaintiffs in the reform, environmental groups that lack energy resources and so on. this is handled the story. these are what economists call rent seeking groups. they control or seek to control the distribution of resources to secure income for the members which wouldn't generate wealth on their own. they suggest economies grow more slowly as much groups will supply and a gain influence over the political process. assuming the resources, reforms this is one reason the u.s. economy grew so loud rapidly, germany and japan took off after world war ii to read these conflicts to strip a network of interest groups that might have blocked the development. obviously we don't want to have the board with interest to the system. but a political people can change in the party regime could accomplish that as the sun. this man is one of the contributions of america's party revolutions. they clean up the interest rate system thereby eliminating roadblocks to reform, expansion and the dynamism. ladies and gentlemen, let me see what else i have here. that's a ch
at the latest report from the international energy agency which may have more of an impact where oil prices are going in this session. they're looking for slightly demand in 2013. and they're pointing to china for the reason. we're anticipating we'll get the report from the energy department at 10:30 a.m. on oil supplies. the expectation is for a slight decline in food supplies. but we did see a major build in the industry report, if that is confirmed we could see these gains short-lived. back to you. >> all right. thank you very much, sharon epperson. we've got a little extra from jamie dimon. but before we get to that -- >> a quick talker on urban outfitters. this morning "usa today" had their new holiday catalog which features a bunch of profane products. there is, for instance, a photo album that says -- basically uses the "f" bomb, drops the "f" bomb and said it was blanking awesome. a candle that spellings ospells out the "f" worth in black. and let's reminisce. a lot of discussion -- one marketing expert said it's brilliant, explosive, short-term marketing that generates buzz. it's t

demint crafting a piece of viable legislation that has to deal with immigration reform or energy reform or any kind of reform period, ari? >> no. clearly not from his record. and kwong he would claim otherwise. he is all about setting down standards, holding the line. not working towards losings. not trying to make government work. i mean what you can say about him he has been honest about his world view. it is a world view where we spend more time worrying billionaires and everyone else, and where government failure is sold as a success. that is literally the idea. and so they're going to go out now and try to do more things to jam up the senate and to tie the hands of government. that's why their deficit goals, that's why they're obsessed with using a lot of long-term scare tactics to basically continue to shrink this government. the one quibble i have with what ryan said, i'm not sure that he alone controls this foundation. kato has had a lot of pushback from the coke brothers. at the end of the day, its people who write the checks. >> republican think tanks, good luck to you
support for the program. host: a tweet -- guest: yes and no. it actually does count energy costs and things like that. however, there is a big discussion among a lot of the advocacy groups who do not to think it truly reflects the cost increase that singers have to pay period i. when the government of the calculation, they take a large basket of items every month and a measure how much prices change. energy, housing, education, transportation, all kinds of things, health care. and there is concern that health care may be is not as big a part of that calculation as it should be, especially for older americans, because older americans may not spend much on education or spend as much on daily transportation, but they probably spend more money on health care each year that other folks do. health-care costs have traditionally gone up higher than inflation every year. so there's some concern it does not truly reflect their cost of living increase each year. host: we're talking about how social security factors into the fiscal cliff. c-span has part of our website set up specifically fo
. i look at my own state of north dakota. we're doing amazing things with energy. as a matter of fact, we're hot on the trail of the state of texas when it comes to oil development. we're after you. i'm telling you. but do you know what it's going to take? it's going to take continued development of the technologies that not only help us produce more energy but help us do it with good environmental stewardship. and what we are talking about is making sure that when we have the engineers and the scientists and the technicians and the mathematicians that graduate from our great universities with doctorate and master's degrees, they can stay here and help us do it here rather than have it done somewhere else in some other country that then gets ahead of the united states. and i still go back to this will help us solve the fundamental challenges we face today, which is getting this economy growing so we get people back to work and creating the reason to help us with our deficit and our debt. with that, i yield back to the esteemed senator from texas. mr. cornyn: could i ask how much time
this coalition and those who are not here today, have brought together to try to inject energy and the right place at the right time. next up will be senator sam nunn, a long-standing chairman of the senate armed services who understands our country and our national security, as well or better than anyone i have ever seen.
